    I've been doing the same thing for several years outfitting restaurants with their full color logos. It's fun!

  5. I have to admit that Ryan has most of us pegged,,I know he is talking about people like me,,I don't necessarily live the lifestyle like some do but when it comes to my cars I am fanatical about them,,I eat,sleep and day dream most of my waking hours.

    What I want to do,what I wish I could do,my next project.

    If I were to spend any time with a professional headshrinker I'm certain I would be labeled as obsessive compulsive.

    BTW,,I'm one of the greybeards that still thinks black with red wheels is cool!:) HRP

    I understand the point being made, but for a custom painter..... That was torture.

    We tend to forget we are a small bunch in the grand scheme of things. So when some folks get on here with peers they want to be seen as on the cutting edge of cool (not Kool anymore):) but if I was in the grocery store parking lot and a pick up with those doors and red steelies pulled up, it would stop me in my tracks every time.

    I am a car guy. Traditional hot rods are my favorite but I can fully appreciate any car that is someones car they own for love, not transportation.

    Wall Art made out of doors is great. One of my favorite things. Black and red wheels... also a personal favorite, because my '54 Buick has been that since I was in high school. Call me what you will but I spend ALL my limited free time thinking about cars... I guess I'm not cool in the eyes of the ones that make the rules, but that's okay with me because I've been this way too long to care.

    It lacks a bit of dirt and torn skin on their hands to be more real

    Ryan [and anyone else who is listening],
    They say you can be cool twince in your lifetime if you just stand still long enough, when it was cool the first time and then when it comes back around again.

    Trends come and go then they come around again, time is a circle as is life my friend.

    I liked the vid myself and the choice of background music shows that the creator of the vid has good taste not just in doors. ;)

    I think the production was well done. The automobile and all things pertaining to it occupy my thoughts 99% of the time, with the other 1% being divided up between girls and sleep equally. Furthermore, did anyone else notice how well warn dude's back pocket was from the dip container? A true Texan, haha.

    Neat video. Very well done.

    I've liked black with red wheels for most of my life...Still do.

    I'm too old to be cool so trends don't mean what they used to for me.:)

    I'm kind of seeing a young Garth Brooks rattlecanning a couple of truck doors.
    The video was done well.
    the lazy guitar certainly got it's hooks in me.
    As a painter, I feel BISHOP's pain.

    We all tend to follow trends and our tastes.
    My destination involving cars was carved at a very early age,
    It developed into my lifestyle.
    Wouldn't want it any other way.
  18. Hey now,don't forget the trend I tried to perpetuate with my pickup using the black with baby poo green wheels!

    The new red!:D HRP

    Well done video! The slo-mo pace and the music make it. Don't worry about what fad is in or out, or what other people like. Like what you like and be passionate about it. Yup, I've got a red-wheeled w/whitewalls ride (as a matter of fact, two). Good read and video.

    It's actually way more complex than I've made it out to be here in my opinion. Essentially, you've got a whole bunch of fellas that are really passionate about something. And when fellas are really passionate about something, it's easy to take yourself and your opinions more seriously than they should be taken... Myself included.

    At the end of the day, we should all just understand that car guys are car guys... And differences make the world go round.

    What stuck me is that the guy had what appeared to be perfectly good pair of doors that everyone wants to find and nothing to put them on. Well done video.

    Ya, and I could use them, can't pay'em for the paint job though.

    Dont forget, it cant be shiny black, its gotta be flat black. When you look at all those b&w lakes photos, all the cars are flat black...

    I feel your pain Bishop; spray cans are for penetrating oil, carb cleaner, brake clean, etc.... and I guess garage wall art, although I don't have room for it.

    His finger had to hurt. I'll rattle can some parts now and then when it doesn't matter but not a whole panel. The bondo feathering on the flat without a block made me cringe too.
